Heavy duty lathes - a special type of lathe

A lathe is a stationary tool for the machine production of rotationally symmetric workpieces. Heavy duty lathes are a special type of lathe. As opposed to small and medium-format lathes, heavy duty lathes can process components weighing up to several tons. Applications include pistons, camshafts and crankshafts for diesel ship engines, coilers for rolling mills, and hydraulic pistons for high-performance linear motors.

Structure of typical heavy duty lathes

The principle behind heavy duty lathes is no different from that of table lathes. A workpiece is mounted between a headstock and a tailstock, and an electric motor brings it into a constant rotation speed, where it is processed using a tool attached to the carriage. With a CNC heavy duty lathe, the process is no longer manual, but rather predetermined by a program.

The dimensions of heavy duty lathes require certain adjustments: depending on the size, shape, and type of the workpiece being processed, it is possible to install support bearings on the lathe in order to prevent the workpiece from bending or slacking. In addition, the chips produced by heavy duty lathes are generally larger, hotter, and faster than those from smaller hand-operated machines.

This is why heavy duty lathes are generally very thoroughly encapsulated and enclosed. Open heavy duty lathes are therefore only permissible for particularly soft materials or slow rotation speeds. This also makes maintenance and in particular cleaning more difficult. Heavy duty lathes are not appropriate tools for inexperienced operators. For table-top lathes, a course in basic machining may be enough to achieve usable results. However, when dealing with heavy duty lathes, both the machines and the workpieces are much more expensive, so their use is restricted to experienced and specially trained operators.

Requirements for heavy duty lathes

A heavy duty lathe is not a stand-alone machine. It must be incorporated into an existing tool assembly. The most important thing for heavy duty lathe operation is an appropriately sized indoor crane. Alternatively, or in addition, a high-performance forklift can also be used. In that case, it should be ensured that there is enough room for the industrial truck to move freely before the heavy duty lathe is set up. It must always be ensured that the workpieces for fabrication on the heavy duty lathe can be securely and precisely mounted and dismounted. Furthermore, an ample power supply and large enough tanks for cooling lubricant are needed for the operation of the heavy duty lathe.

Overview of heavy duty lathe manufacturers

The leading traditional manufacturers of heavy duty lathes are WALDRICH, ROTTLER, and HERKULES. Recently, many Chinese manufacturers have also appeared on the market. The most well-known names among them are SHENYANG and WUXI WHITE EAGLE. Spain has also established itself as a home to competent heavy duty lathe manufacturers. The largest providers here are METALURGICA TORRENT, GORATU MAQUINAS HERRAMIENTA, and DANOBAT.
